Hotel Nikko New Century Beijing
Travel Blogs from Beijing
After a wonderfully long flight, I've arrived safely in Beijing! What an amazing city...ancient Chinese architecture of royal families intermingled with the most modern skyscrapers...welcome to China. Such a history here through the hundreds of years of dynasties, and such a future as China positions itself in our globalized society and economy. So …
Heathrow was pretty painless but BA seem to be on another of their mad cost cutting regimes. Their latest is measuring carry on bags. I was carrying a backpack but was some how exluded. A good 10 hour flight to Beijing and then we met up with our fellow tour members. Not a bad bunch but it's early days. Staying at the Nikko New Century Hotel. Not a …

Everywhere. It was a sea of Chinese people pushing and shoving their way through the train station. Fortunately at 6foot tall, David was able to easily rise above, and whilst keeping hold of each other we found our way to the exit. We then caught our breath and regrouped. We managed to find our ...
... down. Off back to Beijing for Peking duck. It was only 4.30 when we got to the restaurant which was too early.. Beer again but they did give us green tea with the meal this time. The Peking done was not very good. The duck I cooked myself was better. Hope to find a better one when we return to Beijing at the end of May.

... Mao once scored 18 holes in one on a round of golf like North Korea would, they just portray modern China in an overly flattering way. Did you know that China is a working man's socialist paradise? Ignore the fact the country is no less capitalist than the United States, ignore the fact there is no health care or social care, ignore the corrupt politicians and the desperate country folk, it's Marxism for the future.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Nikko New Century Beijing
The hotel was better than I was expecting having enough facilities within the complex to cater for pretty much any Westernised visitors requirements.
The rooms were clean and spacious even the budget ones. The wifi was only available within the lobby but there were data access points in the rooms and they supplied a connecting cable for a laptop so no complaints there.
Drinking water was supplied and replenished daily.
The main restaurant was pleasant and bright and service was good, there were several other restaurants but we only tried one which served traditional Chinese food and was excellent.
On the whole would recommend this hotel to anyone vistiong Beijing.
